fire recognizes that you great folks have a primary mission, that's defense of the nation and we respect that and we understand this is an ancillary job and there is a high revel of rotation of people coming back from afghanistan or iraq, whatever the case may be, but we also reach out to squadron level training. it really comes down to meeting with your cooperating agencies and training together on a frequent basis and having good and open dialogue. >> as i look back at that map here, knowing we were heading into that time of year where we're going to hit significant fire weather and knowing northern california as we are now but eventually southern california, one of the most effective ways to stop the fires from growing is that initial attack, which means we need to be able to quickly put resources up in the air and move them. i guess my question is from a national guard perspective, from a naval perspective, with the helicopter resources down there, do you feel you would be able to quickly move those resources and you have the agreements in place. we'll start with the nation

. in a nutshell, women are angry, they're also defensive." women are angry and defensive. you need proof? go up to any single woman and say "the reason you're not married is because you're angry and defensive." (laughter) and not only -- (applause) not only are today's shrill haarpys scaring good quality men away from marriage, but also making these men deadbeats! banker says the rise of women has pissed men off and underundermineded men's ability in the hopes of someday supporting a family. men want to love women, not compete with them! yeah, men hate women who compete with them! that's why it's so rare for men to be attracted to women in the workplace. (laughter) i mean, what man wants a woman providing the money while he stays home to do what? witness his child taking its first steps? i mean, people before and, frankly, babies aren't that good at it.

: what has the navy said? >> reporter: the department of defense wasted no time saying they do not have any missing drones. they said the u.s. navy has accounted for all unmanned vehicles operating in the middle east. our operations are confined to international waters and space. how then might this drone have ended up in the hands of the iranians. it's possible they found it in the sea. they have been lost in the water but nothing recently. often the distance on the map, there is -- there is some frary an -- thereis some farsi and so. the farsi says "we'll trample on the u.s." iran is trying to squeeze out every ounce of propaganda from what it says it a u.s. drone. bill: we are working our sources at the pentagon stateside. martha: this comes amid new concern over tehran's nuclear program. its nuclear chief saying it will continue nuclear enrichment with intensity. it claim it needs it to fuel a nuclear research reactor. expert say that could be converted into a nuclear weapon. speaking of this nuclear site, inspectors say iran is poised to double the number of site to 1,400. let's g

, the republicans are on the defense. >> worth pointing out though that the republicans still won those, the majority in the house so they won an election, too, and the president, what strikes me as odd, the president campaigned on the tax increase proposal for the highest, you know, the highest couple of percentage of american taxpayers, that would raise, as i understand it, about 850 billion dollars, but he comes out with this proposal that's twice that so he's doubled down on the tax increase that he has. >> he has the upper hand which i actually think he does have the upper hand because every poll that i've seen has most people, including republicans think we should raise taxes on the wealthy. so, in that sense, i think that it is being covered accurately, the problem is, will the president's feet be held to the fire in terms of the other part of the revenue cuts, not just revenue raised and the spending cuts, not just revenue raising which so far isn't happening and probably get away with kicking the can down the field. >> john, there's a terrific bias in favor of government and i

a different view. the defense minister argued that exports to saudi arabia could help stabilize the situation in the middle east. we spoke to a defense analyst. i asked him how likely it is that saudi arabia could use these german tanks to put down uprisings and crush dissent. >> the boxer tanks which are discussed today are an armored vehicle used for transport purposes, not so much for riot control. it is a german-dutch corp. project. it is used mainly for the transportation to protect against insurgents in afghanistan. it is not designed so much for riot control or to control insurgencies, but more to protect the forces of germany and other countries in the field. >> the opposition is accusing the government of flouting court -- german guidelines. is that fair to say? >> the current policy guidelines for arms export in germany go back to the red green government a couple years ago. the current government is more or less responsible for the current guidelines. there is room for improvement. one of the points is that the arms export report is published one year after the actual decisions abo

light to spend valuable defense funds on things like efforts to make biofuels. the military is focused on alternative energy sources faced constant debate in congress this year and i think rightly some republican senator james inhofe is a member of the armed services committee. senator, welcome back to the show. when i go through these stats it is really staggering. you look at the air force which paid $59 a gallon for 11,000 gallons of alternative fuel. the navy spent $12 million on biofuels at a rate of $26 a gallon. at a time we're talking about raising taxes and the fiscal cliff and what financial problems we're in this country, i read these numbers i want to tear my heart out. how do you feel? >> melissa, it is worse than that. in '09 he had the navy pay $424 a gallon for 20,000 gallons. that is fuel on the market you could buy for $3 a gallon. $424 a gallon. in mind, this president has had a war on our defense system. he disarmed america. he has done away with our brigade combat teams, our ships, our f-22s, c-17s, future combat systems. he uses the excuse. no, i have not reduced
